I’m about to leave Penang to wander some of the more truly Malaysian places further south and break up the bus ride to Singapore. I say “more Malaysian” because I’ve heard that Penang tried to split away like Singapore did, and some believe that Penang had even more reason to be independent from Malaysia. I have no reference to judge by, so I’ll spend at least a day in Malacca and might make one more stop before reaching the island city-state and economic tiger, Singapore.
While my favorite way to travel is still by train, the buses are so cheap, it’s hard to say no to. It also gives a bit more flexibility in where I can stop.
The wifi has been slow on the island, so I’ll post some more photos and such when I have a better connection.
